The OAA Congress and Adminstation Seminar awarded the 2020 Regional Championships for the Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian Championships.
Lautoka, Fiji will host the Melanesian Championships in 2020. This will be the third Championships to head to Fiji, with Athletics Fiji hosting the 2016 Melanesian and 2017 Oceania Championships. The Churchill Park track was completed in 2017 and has seen a new interest in athletics in the west of the country. Lautoka will place host to the Fiji Grand Prix, an Oceania Athletics Permit Meet in July 2019.
The Polynesian Championships will go to Nuku’alofa, Tonga. The Teufaiva Stadium, has recently undertaken a complete refurbishment, with the track being replaced by Polytan. A strong tradition of athletics, with a spectacular schools competition each year. It has been over 20 years since Tonga has hosted an Oceania Athletics event.
The Micronesian Championships will head to Guam. Having hosted Oceania Cross Country Championships previously, Guam Track & Field, are looking to transfer that knowledge to the track. With some very good young technical officials, Guam will be a terrific host for the Micronesian Championships.
